Tsitsipas is better than Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, says Wilander

The seven-time Grand Slam winner Mats Wilander commented on how men's tennis will look like once Roger Federer and the other big guys retire. "I am not worried about what will happen once Federer retires. Obviously, we will lose the most fascinating player that tennis has ever had, but did you see Tsitsipas playing? It's a combination of Federer and Nadal.

His personality and aura around his person. If I had to make a choice, I'd prefer Tsitsipas over Federer or Nadal on any day or circumstance. Tsitsipas plays with the same elegance as Federer, he has the same passion as Nadal and he competes like Nadal.

That's really unbelievable. When we speak of the Big Three, we still do not mention him because he has not won anything but let's give him time, he is still so young." Wilander also shared some doubts on Denis Shapovalov: "He remembers a bit Henri Leconte when he was unplayable when fit, but then in the biggest tournaments he was not that consistent."
